you know what guys, if i was a hacker, i will definitely want to hack the android or IOS because it is more interesting than the WP8 which seems to be not interesting OS at all. in other words, as a hacker, i don't want to waste my time just to hack a nonsense crappy WP8. hackers don't have interest on WP8.

Wow. It's so obvious that you are the biggest liar ever. You don't even get any points for effort.

I thought you said you are a hacker. I realize now that I misread that. My bad. I meant this as a response to comment #90.

The only reason I feel safer with a WP8 device is because devices running it are not targeted by hacks/viruses/frauds as much as the most popular android platform...

Hey, you just described Apples entire desktop security model for the past 25 years.

Exactly.
No-one would even care for 5% of the computer users (MacOSX users) worldwide. 80%(+) is a much more profitable choice!
(5% was 4-5 years ago if I remember correctly...)

Decent attempt, but unfortunately, I'm afraid the link contains infected crap from Lagdroid that could compromise my system. I do apologize for the inconvenience, but please, do describe vividly, the content therein, since you're already in that crap. I know that it hurts for you. I take it you forgot your Google condom. Here's some Kit Kat cream. Rub it in. Might pass for something gross.

I'm amused the article reads like a press release. I'm guessing that's all it is, as opposed to actual safety metrics. MS as a first party doesn't do well with security, and merging mobile + desktop into a single OS actually enables more security risks.

Of course, so many M$ and Nokia patents draining money out of Lagdroid! No wonder!

No, he's not!! I own a Moto X, Kit Kat inside, as you know, and that sucker stutters and lags. My SGNx with JB, smooth as butter for the first month, now well, see above. I will say, if you haven't used an iOS device in minute, the lag and stutter becomes negligible and you become used to it. Having said that, I will not give up the freedom Android offers, its biggest strength.
